Lessons from “My Grandmother’s Hands”

Our UUFN Social Justice reading group just finished reading this groundbreaking book. The author draws from his training and extensive experience as a therapist to present startling observations and new science that leads to his guidance on how to heal racial injustice. Unanimously the group agreed everyone needs to read this book. Join us to hear why.

“Shameless Dignity” • Rev. Kristin Maier

We believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all people, yet who does not sometimes struggle with feelings of shame? What might it be like to claim our own dignity without shame? How might that also change how we honor the dignity of   others?

“Where Do We Go From Here, Chaos or Community”

Guest Speaker: Lissa Jones-Lofgren

The title of this presentation is from one of Dr. King’s sermons and books. I would like to posit that we have a choice in where we go from here and that action is crucial for our spiritual healing as a nation, a requirement to get closer to democracy!

“Worthy Being, Worthy Doing” • Rev. Kristin Maier

We make innumerable choices each day about what we do and how. What might happen if we grounded those choices in an understanding of ourselves as worthy beings first? How might that begin to transform what we do for ourselves and others?
